This isn’t your traditional cereal & milk. Oh no, it’s much much better. Cereal IN the waffles, top with a sweet, milk glaze. I mean, this is probably the best cereal & milk ever. I used Fruit Loops, and I got that ‘funfetti’ look. Pulverized Fruit Loops = cereal sprinkles. I think you could use Fruity Pebbles too, but Fruit Loops come in the individual containers, which is so perfect. These are a little bit sweet, a little bit fruity, and a lot delicious!Continue Reading

Taking the idea from my Triple Lemon Macarons, I wanted to make another kind, using the same technique on the filling – it’s my ‘surprise inside’ filling. I thought “how good would salted caramel on the inside”. Sometimes I ask myself rhetorical questions during the recipe planning process, so what. I did a little research to find the best caramel sauce I could buy. The general consensus was that most store-bought caramel sauces aren’t that good! This would not work. Next resort: make my own caramel sauce from scratch.Continue Reading
Oh how I love fall baking.
Stage 1: super excited about upcoming pumpkin recipes.
Stage 2: make way too many pumpkin recipes.
Stage 3: HATE Pumpkin and everything about it.
Everyone loves some Pumpkin Cupcakes in the fall. It’s just a fact. But these are Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting… So they’re turned up a notch! The second I decided to make them, I also decided that they would be used with cake flour. That was for sure happening. Why you ask? Because cake flour makes super, super fluffy cupcakes. Sometimes pumpkin cupcakes are a little dense & heavy, which can also be really good. But this time, I wanted to acheive the lightest & fluffiest pumpkin cupcakes ever!Continue Reading
I’m on a slight delay this morning – I mean afternoon. I want go back to bed and start over tomorrow… I mean, I’m awake, but I don’t feel totally awake. Over the weekend we celebrated out first wedding anniversary. So I have an excuse, but that doesn’t make it any easier. Maybe if I started every Monday with waffles, it would help, at least a little bit. Especially if it were these Lemon Chia Waffles with Blueberry Compote. Fresh lemon, to get you all jazzed up – sweet and tart blueberry sauce – with the nutritional burst from chia seeds.
I love my Spinach Smoothies, you know that… But I also love to switch it up with seasonal flavors! I ran out of my molasses from last year, then I heard about blackstrap molasses – have you guys heard of it? It actually has a lot of health benefits; Iron, calcium, potassium and magnesium and even more. It has a more pungent taste, but since I love the taste of molasses, it was perfect. Some of you may want to additional sweetener though if it’s to intense. I used it in this Gingerbread Smoothie and it was incredibly good. Not too sweet, not too bitter. The perfect smoothie for fall or winter!Continue Reading
Sooo, ya, I did make some Mac and Cheese Pancakes. But first, a backstory…
It all started a few months ago when my husband was in NYC for a business trip. He randomly stumbled across a restaurant called Shopsin’s, the type of place that you can get kicked out of for not following the rules. Luckily, he did not get kicked out and got to enjoy some very delicious Mac and Cheese Pancakes, along with a very unique dining experience. First of all, if you look at the menu, there’s like hundreds of options. I would get kicked out just by taking too long to order. Second of all, there are so many interesting choices to eat, tons of soups, pancakes, sandwiches – everything. These, along with lots of rules: No more than 4 people in a group, you can’t substitute, no cell phones, one meal per person. If I had an awesome restaurant, I’d make up a bunch of rules too.Continue Reading
